Paul, my beloved Brother who taught me to fish & to dance before I was a teenager.
You & Elma opened you home in Titusville to family & those who might have been alone many Thanksgivings. You were a great hostess & a superb cook. Hospitality was a natural for you.
You are missed so much by so many.
